Mods have opinions as well...so what?
Butt hurt or something?
I don't have to agree with someone's opinion but they are entitled to have it.
Yep, I'm butt hurt that newcomers to ATS like you won't get to see real intellectual discussion about real problems we face.
Instead, ATS leadership seems to encourage the divide upon typical party lines, to the extent that discussions have degraded into childish political
name calling and "my team is better than your team" theatrics. ATS used to be a place where we spent our time dispelling collective confusion by
discussing what we as a people actually want and how we might accomplish it without putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price
for being wrong.
This predictable banter that results every time the political pendulum swings is old, tired and most of all ineffective, and it is not the best way to
solve problems. It's one of the oldest con games in the world. It just ticks me off that ATS leadership has shown it embraces this concept now.
Nobody wants to get too real, they just want to play the game. Sad.
Dude, you can't go into a specific obviously partisan light hearted thread and complain that its partisan and full of fluff...its like going into a
McDonalds and complaining about burgers on the menu.
There are tons..hundreds of threads trending now in various forums, some are very in depth and thoughtful, some are silly, etc.
So, to go into a thread based on what you don't like, and say ATS sucks because of that one thread type..thats not saying -anything- about the ops,
or the thread, or the subject
its saying something about yourself.
like the people whom seek out certain radio or television statements to become offended..bypassing the stuff they like..then saying all tv or radio =
that one thing that they don't like.
Yes, free speech means there is going to be some stuff out there you don't agree with.
But you have the ability to simply not visit such areas and read/hear such things. You want to..so deal with it.
